Advice from a Modern Faery

MARCH IS YOUR LUCKY MONTH!
Hello Booklin’s.  Yes, March is your lucky month! This month we have curated many great new books that are perfect for celebrating the beginning of the new Spring Season, which officially begins on Equinox, March 20th.  Below I’ve put together a list of book titles that are perfect for this month.

Auspicious Dates in March include:
March 1 New Moon
March 7 First Friday Artwalk 4pm to 6pm
March 16 Full Moon
March 17 Saint Patrick’s Day
March 20th Vernal Equinox (first day of Spring!)
Watch our TreeHouse Ashland Oregon Facebook page for upcoming events in March.

Our Secret Book Club beta testers will continue to gather Fridays in March for 1 hour story writing & brainstorming sessions at TreeHouse. A few more kids who live in the Ashland area are still welcome to join us. (We recommend this club experience for kids ages 11 and up, as we are testing our storytelling software using computers.)

BOOKS ABOUT SPRING and ADVENTURE:
My First Root Children Boardbook, by Sibylle Von Olfers for ages 1-3  An abridged version of the original tale of wildflower root children, who live underground with Mother Nature, waiting for Spring to arrive so they can come above ground to play.

Journey, by Aaron Becker for ages 4-8 This is a gorgeous wordless book about a girl’s adventure and her surprise friendship with a boy, each equipped with magic crayons.  It is a New York Times Bestseller and a 2014 Caldecott Honor book, and is delightful for adults as well as for children.

Frog and Toad Storybook Treasury, by Arnold Lobel for ages 4-8. Here is the complete timeless collection of all four Frog and Toad books, newly
bound in one sweetly-priced hardcover edition.  We LOVE Frog & Toad!  (Listed again this month as it was out of stock all February.)

The Seven Wild Sisters, written by Charles de Lint and illustrated by Charles Vess ages 8 and up.  From the team that created The Cats of Tanglewood Forest, (a TreeHouse Favorite!) this is the sequel in which Lillian is now elderly and befriends young Sarah Jane, who has some exciting adventures of her own with the hostile fairies of the forest!

Starry River of the Sky, by Grace Lin, award-winning and bestselling author and illustrator. For ages 9 and up. This is a companion novel to “Where the Mountain Meets the Moon”, which is also a  great read-aloud story for younger children with the same quality storytelling that we love, now available in hardcover and a quality paperback edition as well.
